U.S. Identifies Vast Riches of Minerals in Afghanistan - NYTimes.com
This. Changes. Everything.
The war is about OIL, not minerals
Well we just hit the jackpot. How so very lucky of us.

Why on earth are all these deposits and minerals and natural resources sit underneath places with such oppressive regimes or militants?
Because they're too busy trying to cover their own ass instead of exploring the land?
Here's EXACTLY what Obama will do.
He will invest hundreds of millions of American dollars into building the infrastructure necessary to extract said minerals, then he will summarily turn it over to the Afghans without so much as a plan for us to be repaid what is owed us.
So that's what Bush was after. And I thought he was dumb. Silly me.
I'm no expert, but China and the US, among other countries, fighting for this land and their resources could lead to WW3.
What do you all think? It's going to turn into a battle of who really does/will control this land and all it offers.
